You may either take flight or ferry from Yantai to Dalian and taking ferry is the most common way. The ferry tickets can be purchased at the long-distance bus stations, railway station and pier. There are also free shuttle bus available between the bus/train stations and the pier. The boat journey will take about 6-8 hours.
